Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » Meteor Slides: height wrong (too small)

  • Resolved KDawson


    My slides are 900 x 720. The slideshow displays in a sidebar 242px wide, so when scaled the height should be 194px. I place the slideshow short tag inside a div explicitly set to height:194px. Meteor Slides generates a div inside mine with computed height 53px. Safari’s Web Inspector shows that the computed value 53px derives from meteor-slides.css:17, which reads height: auto !important .

    The slideshow displays only the (vertical) center of the slides, with the top & bottom 70px cropped out.

    How do I make Meteor Slides leave the height alone?

    @kdawson If the slideshow is in a sidebar that is 242px wide, why do you have the slides set to 900px wide? The slideshows will scale to fit the container they are in, but it is best to set the slideshow dimensions to the exact dimensions that you want them to display at, and also to size the images to match that exactly.

    If you want to send me a link I can take a closer look, but it sounds like the slide images themselves are cropped, not just resized.

    Did you upload any of these slide images before setting the current slideshow dimensions? The slide images will be cropped to fit the dimensions that are set at the time that the slide images are uploaded. I would try re-uploading the slide images and resetting the images for the slides.

    Josh — thanks for getting back. I solved the problem a few days ago… your final suggestion describes it. I deleted and re-uploaded the slides and all started working.

    I have the slides described as the actual size of the images. That 242px figure represents only a max in a responsive design. The slides now resize with the window size as they should.

    Glad to hear you got it working!
